GRAND LAKE, Okla. — McPherson’s Jacob Lackey has enjoyed a tremendous summer golf season.

Lackey, who will be a junior at McPherson High this fall, was chosen to play for the West team last week in the South Central PGA’s Oakley Cup, hosted by Shangri-La Golf Club.

There were 16 players in this prestigious event, with four each from Kansas, Arkansas, Eastern Oklahoma and Western Oklahoma and they were then split into the East and West squads.

Lackey played for the West team.

In two-man competition, he teamed with a player from Oklahoma and went up against an Arkansas team, winning 3 & 2.

In individual play, Lackey was matched against another player from Arkansas. He won that match 4 & 2.

Aided by Lackey’s two wins, the West team was a 10-8 winner over the East.
